Re: John Elery Guilderson

Hi Dave:

His mother was Matilda Wotton, also spelt Watton. When researching the Watton/Wotton family, I have found baptisms which gave their surname as Welton.

Thanks for posting John Guilderson Obituary and Marriage info.

Would anyone happen to know the mother's maiden name for John E. Guilderson,
below from Parrsboro?

Secondly, who is the niece, Laura George, living with John Guilderson and
Mary George on the 1901 Census? i.e., who were her parents?
